Mythic Sunship - Wildfire LP/CD


With their new album Wildfire, renowned Copenhagen-quintet Mythic Sunship begins a new chapter of the free-form rock journey that has seen them put out a critically acclaimed album annually for the last five years and made them one of Europe’s most interesting new psychedelic bands. Ripping apart the foundation that the previous albums were built upon, the group has reinvented itself to present an album showcasing the band at its core and most primal form. Recorded over the course of four intense days in Stockholm’s generously vintage RMV Studio, the album documents the erratic, visceral, untameable musical organism that Mythic Sunship becomes once unleashed in improvisatory interplay.Working with legendary Danish punk Per Buhl Acs behind the mixing desk to test their sonic boundaries, they’ve put together a set of raw, kinetic outbursts that take the listener from the groovy fuzz rock and cosmic jams that the band is known and loved for into new territories of crunched melodies, uncanny harmonies, turbulent rhythms and even more ecstatic walls of guitar insanity.


With five acclaimed releases in as many years, Denmark's Mythic Sunship have rapidly established themselves among Europe's finest purveyors of psychedelic music, bridging the gap between heavy riff worshipping and expansive, free jazz-tinged experimentation. The addition of saxophonist Søren Skov culminated in 2018's Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music which earned the five-piece three shows at the legendary Roadburn Festival, documented on 2020's live record Changing Shapes. Not ones to rest on their laurels, Mythic Sunship went back to the drawing board in search of fresh ideas and new approaches to their self-styled "anaconda rock." Wildfire, the band's first release on Tee Pee Records, is the exhilarating result, simultaneously showcasing Mythic Sunship's scorched-earth, visceral approach as well as their penchant for crafting epic journeys through time and space.
